When you buy office furniture, there are various things to contemplate. Many of these things you do not even think about until you are set to purchase said furniture. How much will you spend? Does the office furniture need to be new? What features do you need it to have?
While it sounds like a lot, don’t worry. We have you covered. Here we have listed the top tips for purchasing office furniture.
Budget is the first thing to consider when purchasing office furniture. You can weed out many pieces of furniture just by knowing how much you are willing to spend. Let’s take a look at an office chair, for example. There is a huge range of prices, from super cheap to insanely expensive. By having a budget, you can take some of those out of your price tag off your list to help you narrow it down further. Remember the old adage, though- you will get what you paid for. Therefore, if you opt to only spend $50 on a chair, it will most likely not last that long and may not be very comfortable either. We feel that for an office chair, you don’t need an excessive budget, but you should have a large enough one to get a chair that will last and be comfortable. Generally speaking, we feel that about $200 is fair for an office chair.
Next, you will need to look at the type of office furniture they have. In the case of an office chair, there are wide varieties to pick from. Will this piece of furniture be for a small desk or a large one? Do you need one that can go from sitting to standing? Will you require a chair that has armrests?
You will also want to know if you want a fabric chair or a leather one. Or perhaps there is another finish that you like. Whatever you like, consider how easy they are to clean or how comfortable they are. If you have staff that likes to drink coffee, a beverage may easily be spilled. In that case, you would want to go with a chair that is easy to wipe down. Or if your company is in a warm climate, you may wish to purchase office furniture with a mess backing on them.
Ergonomic considerations are next on our list. We feel ergonomic chairs are the way to go because adjustments can be made to suit everyone. Do keep in mind these chairs are generally more expensive than others, but they will hold up well and could make your team more productive because they will have a chair that is better for them- both physically and mentally.
While taking ergonomic considerations into thought, think about lumbar support too. Adjustable lumbar support may be offered on mid-range to the more expensive chairs for an extra fee. But we are telling you this is so worth it! If you can swing having adjustable lumbar support, you will thank us for giving you this tip. By having a chair that allows you to change your back position, you will be better able to accommodate the pains you may be experiencing in your lower back.
